Hector Bellerin is confident Arsenal will finish in the top four this season and has told Arsenal fans not to worry despite their recent poor form.
The Gunners have slipped to sixth in the Premier League table, seven points behind Manchester City in fourth, albeit with a game in hand.
Arsenal have not tasted victory in the league since February and a 2-0 win over Hull City but Bellerin is relaxed about the current situation.
“My message is just to remain calm,” Bellerin said via Arsenal Player. “There are still loads of games to go. I understand that it can be frustrating not to be there at the moment but as I say, we just need to be together.
“The team, fans, everyone – the whole of Arsenal has to be together and be positive. Hopefully like that we can make it happen.
“It’s also true that we have a few games in hand, we are a few games behind some of the teams on top of us. But we knew this year it was going to be very competitive. There were six or seven teams that were going to compete for the Champions League spots.

“We knew that it was going to get tough. It was going to be one of the hardest leagues probably in the last few years. We knew it could happen but we still have loads of games for us to recover and make it into the top four.
“I think it’s just ours for the taking.”
